Polymers (08a)

#318 - Structure and Properties of Polymers II (08A02)
Minor perturbations in the structure of polymeric materials can greatly impact the physical properties. This session will focus on topics related to general structure-property relationships in polymer science and engineering. Structures on length scales from the molecular level (e.g., functionalization) to the macroscale (e.g., dendrites) can be discussed. Different routes to control polymer structure including synthesis, functionalization, processing with external fields (electric, magnetic, flow), and related areas to structural characterization are sought.
